Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Applications and Plans - Assignment and Submission Improvements
The addition of Applications and Plans in the new PAW experience has been very helpful in making PAW more collaborative. However, there are some improvements needed to make it easier to use and be more useful:
The default "Everyone" group that appears in "Set Permissions" of the PAW Reports and Analysis section should be available for selection when assigning groups in Applications and Plans. Currently, if we want to assign every PAW user to an Application or Plan, we have to create and maintain a security group that has everyone added, which seems redundant since there's already and "Everyone" group by default.
Allow individual users to be assigned to steps in Applications and Plans. Just like in the "Set Permissions" section, it would be helpful to be able to add individuals. Currently, if we want only 1 person to be assigned to a step, we would need to set up a new security group with just that one person as a member.
Give admins the option of requiring ALL members of the security groups assigned to a step to submit. Currently, a submission by anyone in the group marks the task as 100% for that group. There are situations, such as budgeting and forecasting, where we would want everyone in the group to submit to signify that they are done. Using the currently method of assignment, if a security group has 30 people and we want all 30 to have a submission, we would need to create 30 security groups with just 1 period per group.
Add a columns in the "Manage Submissions" window that specifies the user who did the submission and the time the submission was done.
Send email notifications:
When steps are completed, send email notifications to the admins.
When due dates are approaching, send notifications to the users of the groups to remind them.
